Forecast

Red Tycoon (7/2), Khelman (7/2), Lucky Beggar (9/2), Ballesteros (7/1), Russian Realm (8/1), Dragon King (9/1), Tavener (10/1), Song Of Shadows (12/1), Powerallied (16/1), Gramercy (25/1), Echo Of Lightning (33/1), Monumental Man (33/1)

Verdict

Richard Fahey has a pair of interesting runners in this contest in Khelman and Ballesteros with the former bouncing back to form last time and the latter set to appreciate the return to turf but it's LUCKY BEGGAR who makes most appeal. The seven-year-old gets the services of Franny Norton here and the gelding is very well-handicapped on old form. He may have found his run coming too soon last time but he's likely to go well off top-weight.
